Details About Opportunities at Progent

Fulltime Work for Network Engineers, Computer Support Specialists,
Security Experts, and Online Support Professionals

Progent wants to hire staff-level, solutions-oriented Microsoft certified engineers with Microsoft MCSE certification; Cisco accredited network consultants with CCIE credentials; security professionals with CISA or equivalent security certification; and high-end network architecture consultants with a background in mobile solutions, wireless networking, fault tolerance, business continuity, data preservation, and virtual servers. Progent also is hiring employees to join our team of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, Progent is hiring talented managers who can perform productively in our fast-paced, virtual office environment.

By maintaining a team of talented and dedicated professionals, providing attentive client care, and offering a strong results-focused pricing model, Progent has managed to expand our customer list dramatically while delivering professional services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and throughout the U.S. An advanced virtual office network, a shared knowledge base, and a group approach to problem resolution have helped Progent to maintain a talented consulting team and a loyal client base.

If you are an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or helping Progent's clients will expand your skills via interaction with our staff of highly team-oriented, talented engineers. Our commitment to providing network consulting and computer help to small and midsize companies will give you the opportunity to collaborate intimately with decision makers and add significantly to the growth of exciting companies.

Progent is looking for consultants who can show verifiable certification related to their special focus. So, if you are a Microsoft expert, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE certificate. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP credential. For network security, you should have you Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Information Security Manager, or other top security credentials. Of course, Progent is aware of “paper MCSEs.” Notwithstanding, the fact that a certificate can not ensure excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your stuff, then the majority of those certifications should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself a professional, then clients deserve to see credentials. We can market your talents, but you must have standard credentials for us to work with. In case you stand adamantly opposed to the concept of credentials, Progent can understand and honor your position, but you are likely not a good fit.

Improve Your Abilities with Advanced Technology and
Joining a Great Group of Network Consultants

Progent's company culture will make you a better consulting professional by enhancing your information technology knowledge and increasing the satisfaction of your customers. Progent delivers on this commitment by attracting the best professional talent for you to operate with, providing a state-of-the-art network and communications architecture, using custom application utilities to enable the highest level of service, and by streamlining proven operational models for finding and maintaining clients.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from other consulting companies is the high quality of our service staff. Out of the scores of consultants who have joined Progent, we have recruited top expertise covering a wide array of technologies. Whether it’s Microsoft Windows, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Mac, Linux, VMware, or other vital areas, we deploy professionals who can help you to be effective on major jobs by leveraging the collective skills of Progent's group of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's team, we invest significantly in providing the best tools to do the work efficiently. Progent will leverage technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment allows effortless connectivity, collaboration, and information sharing with fellow Progent team members — all from at-home or on-the-road offices. You don’t throw away time or forfeit revenue with daily commutes to a conventional office building, and any driving you do for on-site customer work is based on your time table, not Progent's. The most attractive benefit is that much of Progent's consulting services can be performed off-site, offering maximum efficiency for income-producing hours. In fact, some Progent staff do remote consulting only.

Progent's business structure is set up for responding quickly and efficiently to client needs via knowledge exchange and cooperative problem solving. Even though Progent's consultants work with a great deal of independence, resource allocation is centralized, client problems and solutions are meticulously tracked, recorded, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date engineer schedules are published to facilitate team tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is continually monitored. We reinforce the feeling of connection through periodic workgroup conferences and regular company-wide events.

Most of Progent's team is situated across Northern California, however we are attracting a rapidly growing team of consulting experts throughout the United States. Our virtual office infrastructure does away with regional obstacles that restrict the productivity of conventional company models. We enhance the package by offering a full employee care program to promote the physical health and economic security of our team members and their relations.

Just as we have world-class consultants, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that defines Progent. These top-notch contributors to Progent’s growth are enabling us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring each month. We recently marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also an effective marketing operation.

Possessing a commitment to technical excellence is a cornerstone for growth with us. A career in consulting will drive you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in information technology. Being confronted by a continual series of network challenges is what makes consulting interesting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Creative tasks, advanced deployments, vexing or chronic issues, and tricky upgrades are the foundation for what we do every day. With us, you will not stagnate or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer professionals in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every morning enthusiastic about the opportunities to come.

On the way, you will work with some great people, both by establishing strong customer contacts and by working in conjunction with other Progent team members, where you will benefit from and add to their growth. Of course, technology is important, but Progent is a relationship-focused company through and through. If you don’t offer excellent people skills or enjoy working with a diverse assortment of personalities, then Progent is in all likelihood not a good match.

If this seems right for you, we invite you to talk to Progent about our view of the future of information technology consulting.
